According to Notes From Poland, Adam “Nergal” Darski, leader of the controversial theatrical Death Metal band Behemoth has been convicted for offending religious feelings by a court in Warsaw. The charges stemmed from an image the Polish musician posted on social media showing a foot standing on a picture of the Virgin Mary during a music video fro Nergal’s side band, Me And That Man in 2020. Darski was ordered to pay a fine of 15,000 złoty (approximately $4,000) and court costs of almost 3,500 zloty (approximately $942). However, since Darski has contested the judgement, the case will now go to trial.
According to a new report from Loudwire, Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski is facing charges of blasphemy yet again in his home country of Poland. The charge stems from a 2019 image Nergal posted to Facebook, where he’s stepping on artwork of the Virgin Mary on the set of a Me and That Man video shoot. In 2010, Nergal was made to stand trial on blasphemy charges for tearing up a Bible onstage. Nergal won the case, but he also was targeted by the Polish government for a controversial T-shirt design, which resembled the Polish national emblem.

Though it’s been six years since their last record, the band’s heat and hatred has not cooled down. Their recently released second album, The Divinity of Blood (Reaper Entertainment) wreaks havoc in a forceful, yet slightly monotonous way. Continue reading
